Mit einem Stammwürzegehalt von 12,2% und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% ist unser Kloster Machern Hell eine mit untergäriger Hefe vergoren typisch Bayrische Bierspezialität. Der feinwürzige, milde Geschmack rührt vor allem daher, dass das Helle schwächer gehopft und dadurch weniger bitter ist als ein Pils. So entsteht die leicht vollmundige Süffigkeit, aber auch die besondere Bekömmlichkeit unseres Hellen.
Starting from an original extract of 12.2% our light ale is brewed with bottom fermenting yeasts to yield a typical bavarian beer spciality containing 5.2% alcohol by volume. Less hops are used than in a pilsner beer, which gives it a mild taste. Our light ale is a delicious, full-bodied beer which is especially palatable.

0,5 L bottle, consumed during a rainy day in the Austrian Alps. Pours a light, clear, yellow color, with a big, frothy, white head. The aroma is pine and floral hops, with some rye bread, corn, and oregano. Light, pleasant bitterness, and not very sweet. Light body, crisp, and clean. This is a simple and straightforward beer, but crisp and goes down easy.

Bottle. Golden pour. Aroma and taste of sweet malt, mild herbal bitter and some lager yeast flavor. Typical.

Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for this 0,5l bottle. Best before 07.02.2015. Nice worthy beginning. Smooth with not too much sweetness, not much grain. Clean, crisp and smooth. Ideal for a great "Helles". The aftertaste is worthy, smooth with a nice round malty body. Great and ideal. Hints of bitterness in the background, which fit in very well! Easy to drink and still deep. Hints of caramel, nice grains, fresh and thirst-quenching.
For a "Helles", this is amazing!

Cuso (8960) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from trade with Beerhunter111, many thanks man. Deep golden color with thick white head. Malty, yeasty aroma. Malty taste, with some fruitiness, spices, very mild hoppy bitterness. OK.
